Our pets are a part of our family, but they can't always go everywhere with us. Restaurants are a prime example of one place our furry friends are not allowed, in most cases. But if you've ever been out to eat and wished your dog was with you, we've got some good news.

Pup parents will be excited to learn that there are actually several restaurants here in eastern Iowa where you can take your canine. BringFido is a website dedicated to providing you with detailed pet policy information whether "you're looking for somewhere to stay, play or eat with your dog." According to the site, here are some Corridor restaurants that welcome dogs at their outdoor tables.
